Captain asks passengers to volunteer to get off easyJet plane that was ‘too HEAVY to fly’ (and they get £250 compensation each)


The captain of the flight to Malaga from London Southend Airport in Essex said wind conditions meant the weight of the 156-passenger Airbus 319 made it dangerous to take off.

Crew members asked for volunteers while the aircraft sat on the tarmac for more than an hour last week – and ten people selected to leave were offered £250 compensation each.
